Is this a dance? – Autumn 22
When you skip down the street or turn on the spot for no reason; when you stamp your feet in rage or throw your arms in the air in joy… Have you ever wondered ‘is this a dance’?
Dance artists Eva Recacha and Lola Maury explore this question by letting their bodies take the lead, and imagination run riot through playful games and endless questions. Expect energetic movements, surprising pauses, and absurd situations, with a bit of contemplation on the side.
This is a show for anyone who has ever found joy in mindlessly moving to music like nobody’s watching.
Recommended for ages 4-11, and schools groups from Reception, Key Stage 1, and Key Stage 2.
Is This A Dance? will begin touring to arts centres, village halls, schools and beyond in Autumn 2022.
